A controversial question paper has caused havoc in Kendriya Vidyalaya Sanghatan. On September 7, a question paper was circulated on social media had questions based on caste and religious stereotypes. DMK chief M K Stalin had also shared the question paper and claimed to be related to Kendriya Vidyalaya School in Tamil Nadu or Puducherry.
Since all Kendriya Vidyalayas are affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), the Board gave a clarification in response. “CBSE does not set question paper for lower classes and hence is in no way responsible for the discriminatory nature of the question,” the Board said.
Deputy Commission of KVS Regional Office has said, “None of 49 Kendriya Vidyalayas of Chennai region has prepared such questions/ question paper. Moreover the pattern of question paper in KVs is different from what is being circulated in media.”
